Why tie yourself down to a desk or a couch when you can game anywhere?
It was not that long ago that the very concept of mobile games being anything but repetitive, artless, money grabs designed for waiting time was laughable. But now, in the year 2021, we know that mobile games can be much more than Candy Crush — they can be works of art on par with any massive, triple-A title.
Here are four of the best mobile games from indie game publishers you need to download.
The Silent Age
If you’re looking for a puzzle game that will completely transport you to another time and place, then look no further than The Silent Age. In this retrofuturistic, dystopian game, you play as a janitor named Joe, and your goal is to stop the end of the world.
This seemingly simple, point-and-click (or should we say tap) adventure game will draw you in with its gripping silent story and stunning graphics. If you are looking for a mobile game with a little more substance, then House of Fire’s The Silent Age is for you.
MIRIAM: The Escape
Are you looking for a mobile game that will haunt your dreams?
MIRIAM: The Escape, from Tengle. Games, is a simple puzzle game that will leave you wanting to sleep with the lights on. If you are a fan of Limbo or Little Nightmares, creepy nostalgia, and stories with multiple endings, then MIRIAM: The Escape is perfect for you.
Are you a retro-gamer who is looking for a modern spin on classic motifs? Then you are going to want to get to know Cat Bird.
Part cat, part bird, all adorable, this pixel-art platformer takes everything you love about standards like Mega Man and takes things up a notch. With simple and beautiful graphics and a soundtrack you will want to keep listening to, Raiyumi’s Cat Bird is a modern classic you will not want to miss.
The War of Ages
From the indie publisher, GameMine, The War of Ages is a fun new take on a classic mobile strategy game genre. Play through different eras of human history and learn to adapt to ever-changing advancements in technology. If you are a fan of combat strategy games, The War of Ages is one game you won’t want to miss.
